Roughedge was out. He was working on a ship that had crashed. His kids behind him playing. Dragonfire running around and Actia crawling beeping and chirping. He still blames himself, he felt bad but, was accepting what he had learned.

He stops and looka behind him. His kids came over. Dragonfire holding Actia. Both being startled by a rustling sound coming from the woods.

ACS TONIGHT

The day that we wait for so long is finally here!!

Almost a year ago we knew that D would take part of this series in the biggest role of his life. And I knew that he’d an amazing job, the best job of his life and that this role could open everything for him.

We watched every pic that come out. We watched all the promos and couldn’t wait any longer. The day is here!!

And even if I already watched the episode and I know perfectly how amazing, incredible, phenomenal, stunning is D in the show, I wanna just say that like the first time I’ll probably cry again and he’ll take my breath away again.

D, I’m so fucking proud of you. You begun with YouTube and now you are starring in a big show, with a big role and a big castmates.

Your talent will finally be out in the world. Everyone is gonna see how amazing you are. And even a part of me want to keep you to myself, I’m ready to finally share you with the entire world. I waited this moment, like you waited it.

You’re the biggest star in the sky and tonight, my love, you’ll shine like you never did.

I’m so proud of you. So so so much. And I love you endlessly.

Love,

Me.

How To Come Out in A Conservative Society

An History Lesson on Ellen DeGeneres and Theories about BTS

First, let me start off by saying that I know this is going to piss off some people. Your precious boys can’t have a bad rumor spread about them, can they? 

Well, fun fact: These rumors about idols have gone on for years, and they still have jobs. The rumors aren’t the problem, because when it comes to LGBT rumors, unlike straight rumors or controversies, Korea readily just accepts them as not possible and so someone can be rumored gay and nothing come from it, unless it was ever confirmed, so again, the rumor isn’t the problem. The lack of acceptance if said rumors are confirmed is the problem, because idols can only work if a company feels they will be able to make money. It is simple economics. If fans are not willing to accept and openly express acceptance, how can we expect a society to? How can we expect companies to feel that their artists have a market? Now I understand Korea has a thing about censorship despite fan reaction. This is a part of the problem, and it is a complicated political setting in which I do not understand and therefore cannot determine the ultimate solution. 

All I can say is this:

Guys, America was not always as accepting as it is now. America did used to be like Korea, and none of the laws for the LGBT were in place. What changed? The people. If you, as fans, are so set on protecting idols that you inherently promote the idea that being LGBT is an issue, even if you don’t mean it that way, you are being problematic to the cause. Discussing it openly allows idols and even companies to see the acceptance among fans, and fans educating other fans about it allows the societies to see the change in the people. You have the power but when you so adamantly push to censor the discussion, you give the power to those who wish to not acknowledge the LGBT. Talking is good, and could really help an LGBT idol feel better about themselves if they are LGBT.

NOW ONTO THE TOPIC OF DISCUSSION!

So, BTS wants to visit Ellen. This is very interesting to me, as I have always felt a slight connection of their stories. I have a theory, but you have to actually hear me out to try and understand that this is something legitimate and not just some delusion of grandeur. 

First, how many of you actually know the history behind Ellen?

Well, I am going to assume that a lot of you are younger than me. BTS is younger than me lol. So, in the 90s, Ellen DeGeneres was an American television sweetheart. People loved her. American families watched her all the time. She was really popular. She had her show Ellen, which if you didn’t know, was not the talk show she has now. It was an actual sitcom where she played a character named Ellen. She boldly made the choice ON THE SHOW to have the character come out as a lesbian, and the next day on a talk show, she came out herself.

It was a bold move in the 90′s when LGBT rights were in the shitter. Still, if you look back, she actually was quite clever and strategic. She played the every woman and that’s why families loved her, but you will see hints of her sexuality. She used her medium and talent to subconsciously familiarize her audience with the idea of her being LGBT. It took a lot of work, and trust me, her coming out was not ENTIRELY smooth, but it went quite well. She was one of the few at the time to come out and have her career thrive after. 

She after that managed to have the highest viewed day time talk show that still runs today, a role in one of the most beloved children’s films, Finding Nemo. In fact, a open lesbian having a role like Dory in a children’s film at all was a huge deal. She managed to do all of this and land a deal with JC Penney and Covergirl, and her net worth is 350 million. She even for over a decade remained with her wife Portia, all while her career grew. Sure, along the way there were idiots who condemned her, but most of America loved Ellen.

All from a woman who wore short hair, gender non-conforming fashion, and openly lived as a lesbian in the 90′s. She may not be too shocking to you guys, but she did “look like a lesbian” in what people would have defined (don’t take this as my belief).

How? 

Just being someone everyone can connect to! She was happy and funny and wanted the world to laugh! She showed that LGBT people are just like everyone else. They wanted their rights, and that was all. This is a discussion for an entirely different subject, but I as an LGBT can tell you that while I think people should be accepted and able allowed to behave in the manner they see fit as long as it harms no one, there is value in LGBT who are not defined by the stereotypical “LGBT” behavior and are simply just day by day people who live just like you. Ellen did not over-exaggerate her sexuality’s stereotypical behavior. There is nothing wrong with being flamboyant, but sometimes sadly, the first step to acceptance is to be able to empathize and she was the one to be able to connect to easier, and with time, starting with people like her being accepted, times changed, and now we are seeing acceptances for all forms. It isn’t perfect, and it probably never will be, but it is there. She pushed boundaries, but she did so strategically and it worked for her.

NOW LOL WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH BTS?

Well, if you are familiar with their music, behavior, ethical principles, and the HYYH, then you might see where I am going with this.

Firstly, I would be here for hours if I mentioned all the various moments were they referenced something LGBT or did something related to. There is the Japanese Jungkook fanboy, Glam’s Party XXO, Namjoon’s words about the issue, Yoongi and his fuckery, Troye Sivan ultimate stanning, ‘I Know’ etc, but let me continue with my point.

I feel that BTS are familiarizing their fans with the idea of LGBT within idols. Idols have always had fanservice, and idols have always had ones who professed acceptance. There have even been idols that have hinted towards ideas of LGBT in their art (like Monsta X’s All In) but if ARMYS are correct about the HYYH, there may actually be the first LGBT narrative involving idols (KWill’s Please Don’t featured an LGBT plotline but I am talking about the idol themselves being involved). 

There have been hints that Yoongi and Jungkook within the narrative have a romantic plot. The HYYH Notes give this idea some light. Granted, we could be incorrect, but it does seem to be the case with the narrative text. We will have to see in the future where they take it.The Love Yourself highlights also hint at this. Then, Namjoon’s insistence on Love Yourself: Her being gender neutral. I think this is for a specific purpose as well.

Then there was the photoshoot with Jimin and Jungkook on the same rainbow unicorn float that was used at Korean Pride that same summer. I do not find this coincidental at all. There is a message, and I find that they are trying to send it in a palatable way for fans, which sadly shouldn’t have to happen, but it is the society we live in. There is the fact that they covered a song without changing pronouns, which would be ignored had it not been for the recent Namjoon comments and the fact that the BigHit survey featured more than the two genders. I think they recognize all of this. I think that this is all to familiarize fans with directly associating idol with LGBT. 

They are pushing boundaries, but doing so strategically.

Now, this next part might split some people, because it involves two members together, and I know people get pissy but hear me out. Please note that while you may think I am wrong, if you believe there are other LGBT members, the former discussion still applies.

I think the recent events involving Jungkook and Jimin are not fanservice. They are real events that are used by the two for fans. Let me explain: If they are together, they are spending time together, publicly interacting, and expressing themselves more. They are doing this because they love each other, but this is shown for fans for the purpose I believe of getting fans used to the idea, so that if they did eventually come out, it would not be such a shock. Much like Ellen did. I could be entirely wrong, but I think every moment is genuine and they are just showing it to people they care about to show their love. It can be a gift to fans, but that does not make it fanservice. 

As, I said, take the last two paragraphs away, and my point is still relevant, but I do believe they are utilizing this as a chance for members to come out who would not feel comfortable doing so before. I find at this point in time, the most likely is Jimin and Jungkook.

For sure, Jungkook. I always believed him to be some form of LGBT.

NOW, what does any of this mean? What does the future hold?

Well…

You got me.

If I am correct, and I believe I am, this means that BigHit and BTS will eventually tackle the idea of LGBT head on. I think an issue is with the Korea Unicef program, as it is 2 years long, and Yoongi decided not to get a tattoo to be able to do it, so what makes us think being LGBT wouldn’t be an issue, BUT who knows? They may utilize the fact that they are the current most successful Korean idol artist on a national and worldwide scale to see what can happen. Not changing the language they sing in reaches to their intent for change and being a voice for Korean youth, and utilizing the international fame allows them to bridge the youth they are reaching to with the liberalism of Western media.

The thing is in order to not kill their careers, they have to be big enough to survive it. That is why the first part of my essay is so important. Fans are the key. Our support and votes, and yes, our money, is the key to them being big enough that they are untouchable. That might not ever truly happen but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. If we can have an idol who is LGBT that is as big as them, that can invoke change…

JUST LIKE ELLEN. It takes time. Things didn’t change immediately after her, but damn if life didn’t get more and more progressive. I also credit so many others for that, but this is about them.

Please, take into consideration that I put a lot of thought into this before you brush me off, BUT ultimately this is my opinion. Good Day.

More and more in our industry, I’ve been finding they’ve been opening up the roles. The roles I’ve been going for are very open [in terms of] ethnicity, and they’re casting for the organic characters—who the people are, rather than what we want the skin colors specifically [to be] for this character. And I actually like that a lot. They were casting for the right personality that fits the role.

“You know, it’s flattering when there’s a rumor that says I’m bisexual. It means I can play more kinds of roles. I’m open to whatever people want to call me. I’ve never really been attracted to men sexually, but I don’t think I would be afraid of it if it happened.”

*posh british accent:*  “yeah, erm, this film was quite interesting I think, em, preparing for it was a challenge that I was certainly not expecting. You know, this character is, is, is a… handicapable character, and obviously as method actor, I spend lots of time trying to get into the skin of that character, you know. I actually spent 3 whole days using a wheelchair, and truly it was the most eye opening experience I fink and actor can have, really. Erm, you know, playing such a, a, a, tragic and helpless character, yet also trying to bring that level of inspiration to it was a new type of challenge for me. While I was preparing for this role, the thought that, em, disabled might actually exist crossed my mind, and I was quite inspired by that, really. I never knew London was such an inaccessible city until those long 3 days I spend prepping for this role, I was quite inspired, ermm, by the idea that sometimes disabled people go out in public. So, it really was quite an eye opening role for me, as a method actor, and I’m excited to win an Oscar for this role, because I know I will.”

Casting is gender-blind.

seems like i can’t keep my trap shut so im DOIN IT! not enough women in the penumbra podcast, you say? okay! as far as i’ve seen, the chief arguments supporting this claim are

1) there are more male characters than female characters

there aren’t. actually, there’s an incredibly even spread. both recurring and one-time characters are just as likely to be a man as a woman (usually in the binary sense, but occasionally otherwise). i wont break it down into a chart of which characters are main vs secondary vs tertiary, because that’s subjective as hell and you know it

(this is all specific to the juniverse, by the by, because most of the argument is focused there) 

2) too many of the villains are women

there are a lot of woman antagonists. i think there are objectively more woman antagonists than men. this is partially a genre-bending move, bc noir women are usually just there to have the hots for the leading man, or to be a femme fatale, and these girls are all outside of those roles.

this is also because when the leading ‘man’ is nonbinary and his love interest is a gay man, the only major role left open in the structure of this show is the antagonist, and they seem to take care to have a woman in a major role every episode. 

the corollary to this argument is because these women are antagonists, they aren’t framed sympathetically. and that’s just not the way the writing of this show works, okay? villain isn’t exactly the right word, either. it’s noir, so the heroes are mostly antiheroes and the ‘villains’ are mostly antiheroes, too. there’s some exceptions on both sides, but applying a black-and-white morality to this show is really oversimplifying the truth to further your argument. ‘framed sympathetically’ is also a very subjective statement to make. it’s just as much about your personal perception of the character as the words on the page

miasma, i understand. but if you can’t sympathize with any of the women who are ‘villains’, it’s not because of the writing, it’s because media trains us all to hate female characters. when women are nuanced and have believable flaws, we learn to never forgive them for it

and whether you like them or not, they’re still characters, and they’re still women. pretending they don’t exist doesn’t help anyone

3) there aren’t enough queer women 

there are no straight women in the juniverse. every woman in every role is queer

there’s only been one established happy f/f relationship, but lemme raise you this: there have been exactly two established happy relationships in the juniverse. captain khan has a wife offscreen, and valles vicky has a wife offscreen

4) juno’s nonbinary, so he doesn’t count, and there should be a woman in the leading role 

i’ve only heard this stated explicitly once, but it’s usually kinda implicit in these arguments. still not cool!

i dont think we even realize how easily we erase juno’s femininity sometimes. yeah, he’s nonbinary, but he’s a lady. and when you claim that you’d rather see a binary woman in his role than a nonbinary one, you’re being transphobic. hell, guys, juno’s the first nb character i’ve ever seen in a leading role before. if that’s not something you want to see, this show probably isnt for you


& finally, as i’ve stated before, even if this show included zero women at all this argument completely undermines the wonderful representation of mlm and nonbinary characters, characters of color, disabled and mentally ill characters! there’s no right way for a show to be diverse! im mostly saying this as a white woman, because i notice we white women have a tendency to expect our representation should be handled before anyone else gets the chance
